Jang Keun-suk Voted Asia's Most Talked-About Star
Actor Jang Keun-suk won two prizes at the 2010 Yahoo! Asia Buzz Awards, held last Friday in Hong Kong. Based on the number of searches for his name on Internet portal Yahoo in Asian countries including Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Indonesia between Nov. 8 and Dec. 1, Jang was named both Asia's and Korea's Buzz Star.
"It's a big surprise that so many people give me love and attention, even from countries where I haven’t appeared much, and I'm very grateful," said Jang. "These awards are meaningful to me, and come with a responsibility, because fans in four countries in Asia chose me as the winner."
On behalf of the actor, who is busy for "Marry Me, Mary," now airing on KBS 2TV, Yahoo! Korea attended the ceremony and delivered the trophy to him.
Jang's fame seems poised to continue to grow as his dramas "You Are Beautiful," "Beethoven Virus" and others are scheduled to be aired throughout Asia next year.
